    I'm finishing a baby quilt for my SIL's sister that lives in Italy.
    My SIL paid for the fabric and I picked the fabric and design.
    Do I put my name on the quilt as the quilter and given by SIL?
    Not sure what is correct. Thanks for your help.

    you should also add the fiber content if you use poly batting (or some other fiber that should be added to the label along with the 100% cotton fabrics) and care instructions. i also add my city, state and USA on my labels.

    I also include care labels, but I 'tack' them to the back of the quilt with a safety pin. Below is one link that sells them. Some are $1.29 each:
